Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

Oh, the heaviness of summer.

I've been home for a few weeks. All I do is complain about the heat and... I water.
Think good things Farmlady...
*The tomatoes are still thriving.
*The chickens are still given us eggs.
*There have been no wildfires close to us.
*We have air-conditioning.
*The well hasn't run dry.
*The turkey have returned.

... but the leaves are falling, early, from our trees
  and the garden is sad.

Even Hotei is not happy.
 It's going to be a long end to the summer.
